Weekly Communication - Week of September 21

Our first week is complete and it has been fantastic! Overall, everyone is adapting to the new protocols and is bringing energy and focus to the pool. Keep it up, and continue to send us your questions and suggestions.

 

RETURN TO SWIM UPDATE

Pick up protocols

We have sent out a lot of information regarding drop off, but pick up is just as important. With the new COVID-19 protocols in place, athletes need to be picked up at the scheduled training session end time.  For example, if the training session is scheduled to end at 8:00pm, athletes will exit the pool at 7:45 and will be outside waiting by 8:00pm. Athletes are not allowed to wait indoors, and with the cooler weather upon us, we want to minimize the amount of time they spend outside waiting.

Schedule changes

ICYMI - An email was sent out earlier this week regarding slight changes that were made to the training schedule that impact the Intro B, Intro C, and Junior Blue groups. Refer to the team site for the updated schedule . 

Online Screening

The Town has a quick online screening process  that will help speed COVID-19 screening and admittance. This process must be completed before every practice. Athletes who have a phone can complete the process online and show the Life Guard and Coach the green check mark on their phone. For those who don’t have a phone, Parents can complete the screening, and enter the pool with their Athlete to show the green check mark. For Athletes who do not complete the online screening prior to arriving, there will be a Life Guard at the pool to record the Athlete’s info and enter it for them.
